For a long while we had showcased the weekly and monthly contest winners on the homepage, but since that has been removed, let’s share them here for all to see and bask in their glory!
For those of you who don’t know, each week, we’ll be giving away $250 to the top-rated game and $150 to the second and third place games uploaded on Kongregate. These weekly contests run Saturday to Friday and must have a minimum of 10 votes to qualify.
We’ll be awarding $1500 to the highest-rated game in our monthly contest, $1000 to the second-highest, $700 for the third, $500 for fourth, and $250 for 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th. Games must have a minimum of 30 votes to qualify.
To be eligible for our monthly prizes, games must also implement our statistics API. Instructions can be found here. We promise it’s fast and painless, and it’ll also make your game eligible for challenges and non-time-limited achievements/statistics in the future.
